I got this out of the newspaper. My family likes it and it's a lighter recipe for pasta then using a cream based sauce.

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions, adding the peas for the last 30 seconds of cooking. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ham, and cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the oregano, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the broth, stir in the mustard, and bring to a simmer. Add the cooked pasta and peas, and simmer 1 minute to heat through.
  3. Remove from heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese and serve.
